Mississippi State is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 home games.
I get the allure of points with Mississippi State here as some may think of a letdown for Georgia after such a key win over Tennessee last time out. However, I think this Georgia team is too good to let any sort of letdown occur, and while I’ve been high on Mississippi State for much of the year, the reality is that this will be the best team they’ll have faced and I don’t know if even Mississippi State will be able to match Georgia here. Give me the Bulldogs in another convincing win.
